SHARP EXPANDS PROFESSIONAL PROJECTOR SUITE WITH AFFORDABLE UNITS DESIGNED FOR CORPORATE AND EDUCATION INSTALLATIONS
MAHWAH, NJ, January 26, 2006 – Combining high brightness with outstanding performance and a full feature set, Sharp's new Conference / Classroom Series XG-MB65X and XG-MB55X projectors are ideal for corporate and educational customers. The portable projectors feature Texas Instruments DDR* DLP technology for high image quality (2000:1 contrast ratio), as well as XGA native resolution that is ideal for any educational or meeting room setting. The series has built-in RS-232C connectivity so IT support departments can remotely check projector lamp life or provide operational support.
"Teachers, business professionals and corporate presenters can deliver an unforgettable presentation using the XG-MB65X or XG-MB55X," said Bruce Pollack, associate director of marketing, Sharp Information Systems Group. "These projectors offer the latest in imaging technology combined with easy-to-use functionality, at an affordable price point."
Sophisticated Image Quality
The projectors weigh less than nine pounds and can be ceiling mounted (for permanent installations) or operated from a table-top or AV cart. For "portable" use, they can be moved easily from classroom to lecture hall or boardroom to home office.
They offer HDTV/DTV compatibility for use with current and future video technologies as well as extensive connectivity. Inputs are provided for two RGB or component sources, S-video, composite video and stereo audio. Outputs include stereo variable audio line-out ("VAO") and RGB monitor loop-through. Both models additionally feature an RS-232C port, and the requisite RS-232C control adapter ships with the product. An optional AN-LS1 Ethernet to RS-232C interface permits LAN connectivity.
Low Total Cost of Ownership
Both models are backed by a two-year parts and labor limited warranty including two years of Sharp's industry-leading 24-hour turnaround "ER" Express Repair support. Warranty on the user-replaceable projection lamp is 90 days.
